Has Crosby gotten off the plane from Pittsburgh yet?
The two semi-finals games are now going to be rematches of the last two gold medal games.
He's the guy that's winning every damn face off that Canada takes.
In the over-40 category, Sandis Ozolinsh didn't impress quite as much as Selanne and Jagr.
#366 You're right, he only played in junior leagues inside of Czechoslovakia, never internationally.
You're allowed to switch countries once, I don't think he ever played in an IIHF-sanctioned tournament prior to defecting to Canada, so he could switch to the CZR.
It's odd to me that they run the second leg of the two-part alpine races worst-to-first. When I was racing as a teenager, they'd go 5-4-3-2-1-6-7-etc, and with the marginal conditions on the mountain it's such a huge disadvantage to go last like that.
One thing I often wonder about, if you draw a penalty while on the PP, isn't it in your best interests to get on the 5v3 as soon as possible? 30 seconds of 5v3 is more dangerous than 60 seconds of 5v4, surely.
Has anyone commented yet on how ridiculously athletic Heather Moyse (Gold winning Canadian bobsleigh brakeman) is yet?
Oh well, one can hope America has used up all its hockey mojo for the next couple days.
That open netter was about 1/2 an inch from a gold medal clinching goal.
Just please, anything but a shootout.
I didn't get to watch - make up call to end the US powerplay, then Canada later gets a power play instead of a deserved penalty shot?
I'm not even sure it should've been a penalty shot
As a Canadian, I can say that live, it looked like it should have been.
On the first replay (from one angle), it looked like it should have been.
On the second replay (from a different angle)....I'm not so sure she even touched Wickenheiser.
I can fully understand why the refs called it a penalty at full speed, but I can't understand why it wasn't called a penalty shot when they made that decision.
#427: The airport one? That was pretty much my reaction.
A question for Canadians, since I never played hockey on ice: when you're in the box of shame and your penalty expires, what determines whether you join the play or skate right across to the bench? Does the coach tell you when you go to the box, is it a "green-light" thing with the coach, or is it a read based on where the play is?
Justin Faulk stepping in in his place.
You know, one thing I haven't heard is who is the home team for this game. Do they even have one?
As a Bruin fan the worst part of the Olympics has been the NBCSports commercial showing the Blackhawks last second victory in the finals last year.
